NRPS set from 4-28-71
Just wanted to clear up any confusion that the NRPS set on this recording seems to be similar to their set from the 28th

OK your April Fool's joke has become tiresome
With a joke banner that boasts of having "re-mastered the entire Grateful Dead collection," the Archive has slowed down all music by some 25% or so while keeping pitch correct. It sounds terrible. OK, you got me for a minute, "LOL."
Please fix it now. Some of us (I'm sure there are others) are just trying to get through another day and hoped to feel a little better here.

Question about NRPS set ???
As a Duane Allman fan, this has always been one of my favorites. But the three tunes with Duane aside, this show would still be a classic...it is Pigpen at his very best, and this is a nice, clean copy!
The official New Rider set list is over an hour long, starting with Brown-Eyed Handsome man, but most recordings have a shorter NRPS set beginning with Henry and The Weight. Does anyone know which is the correct one for that night? Could the longer one have been an early, all New Riders show and the the shorter one an opening set for the later Dead show? Not that it matters much...both are great New Riders sets, but I'm just curious.

I love all the breaks in between the songs; it gives us a chance to hear what it was like to be there.
Duane Allman, the lead guitar player for the Allman Brothers plays slide guitar on Sugar Magnolia, it's my favorite version.
4 Pigpen songs makes this show even more special. Pigpen's performances are exceptional.
I wish I was at this show. Well, now at least I can say I heard it.
You can clearly hear the New York City audience screaming for more at the end of the show as if their lives depended on it...scary eh?
When the GRATEFUL DEAD sang to us, "YOU KNOW OUR LOVE WILL NOT FADE AWAY" they meant it and this show proves it 37 years later.
THANKS FOR THE LOVE.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD. I do.
